Speaking of razor blades....You wouldnt think such a small little thing would be SO important but ALL razor blades are NOT equal.....GET GOOD ONES...
I bough a box of 100 at lowes and they were the worst junk I ever used ...
stripping some peeling clear ,they nick after about two passes I had to throw them out, they wouldnt even cut masking paper without tearing it.
I got some good ones (PPG) and I stripped a whole hood today with one blade and never scratched or nicked the base coat...
The reason I mention this is I can only imagine someone that didnt know trying these and not knowing how they are supposed to work and nicking and scratching the whole job making all that extra work especially when stripping that last layer of epoxy or primer of the steel...a nicked blade is bad ,even for your sheetmetal
